I am a village administrator

From my perspective (= view) as a foreigner in Myanmar, it seems that much of the governing, organising, administering and decision-making at a local level is done by the village and township administrators.


These positions seem to vital to the day-to-day operation of government in Myanmar. The people who are in these positions are the interface (= middle connection) between central government rules, laws and regulations and many of the Myanmar people.
